and other infrastructure projects.  We are also exploring other communities near for expansion of our work, starting with community meetings and creating community plans that may include economic development, school construction, and women’s initiatives.

The types of volunteer opportunities that exist include teaching English, helping with school construction, working with our women’s cooperatives, agriculture projects, trail construction, marketing and business development.

In Nepal, volunteers are exposed to a vibrant, dynamic culture, strong in traditions, spiritual and traditional belief systems that come to life every day, and in every aspect.  volunteers also may chose to combine trekking and other recreational opportunities.

We are organizing a trip for the end of October, 2016!  Travel with Namlo and get direct, hands-on experience in helping us build a school in a remote community in Sindhupalchowk district.  We’ll also have volunteer projects with environmental education, conversational English with teachers and students, school sports, and even working with local villagers to help plan future volunteer activities.  You can be part of the planning process by letting us know your interests, skills and preferred dates.  Contact us at namlo@namlo.org or kfrausto@namlo.org, or by calling 303-399-3649 or 720-839-6094
